I went to the Artisan for a friend's work leaving celebration and it couldn't have been better! The staff are charming, the service just the right speed and the food absolutely delicious.
The Artisan is just down the road from the Swan Centre Shopping Centre in Eastleigh about five minutes walk from the car park.
The restaurant looks small from the entrance on High Street but appearances can be deceptive! There is plenty of room inside, though I do suggest booking in advance. The interior is decked out in wood and traditional ornaments and has a lovely atmosphere. It's easy to forget that you are in the depths of South Hampshire!
We had three courses for about £16 (not including drinks) on a special pre booked deal. Guests can serve themselves with the starters and main course - this is ideal for individual appetites! There were six starters to choose from and you could try each one. For the main course there were two meat options (lamb and chicken) and vegetarian. The staff were attentive to just the right degree and very welcoming. If you like Turkish food you will love this place! Very highly recommended!
PS A takeaway service is available - check out the Artisan's website!
